MemoriesOnTV - music timing bug

Discussion in 'Amateur Video Production' started by Terry Pinnell, May 23, 2005.

  1. I've reported the following bug in MoT's music timing to the
    developer, Codejam: If an image file is edited outside MoT (e.g. to
    shorten or filter it, etc), then the new version is nicely immediately
    reflected by MoT. In contrast, if a sound track MP3 file is edited,
    then MoT still uses the *old* timing. Even if the original mp3 is
    deleted in MoT and the edited one dragged across to replace it, the
    time remains unchanged at the previous duration. Some sort of 'false
    memory'. The only way to reflect the change is to rename the MP3 with
    a new name, delete the old one in MoT, and drag the renamed one
    across.

    These three successive screenshots show an example
    1. http://www.terrypin.dial.pipex.com/Images/MoTMusic1.gif
    Music1.mp3 has been dragged into MoT, which shows correct duration of
    1:21

    2. http://www.terrypin.dial.pipex.com/Images/MoTMusic2.gif
    That track has now been edited externally as I described, shortening
    its duration to 1:06. Unlike the parallel case of edited images, MoT
    does not recognise this yet. But no matter, we'll do the obvious
    thing, as per your instructions.

    3. http://www.terrypin.dial.pipex.com/Images/MoTMusic3.gif
    The MoT entry was deleted, and then the edited file dragged into MoT
    again. As you see, it does NOT change to the correct duration of 1:06.
    It remains at the previous value of 1:21, as I described in my
    previous emails.

  2. Correcting typo:

    If an image file is edited outside MoT, then the new version is nicely
    immediately reflected by MoT. In contrast, if a sound track MP3 file
    is edited, (e.g. to shorten or filter it, etc) then MoT still uses the
    *old* timing.
